YDance is looking for 20 youth dance groups from counties in the UK to take part in a 3-day festival of workshops and performances at the first ever Commonwealth Youth Dance Festival in Glasgow.
The festival will celebrate the best of youth dance from across the Commonwealth, and be part of an exciting cultural programme surrounding the sporting events at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. The Festival will take place over three days and nights from 10–12 July 2014, and involve around 30 groups from across Scotland, England, Wales, Northern Ireland and other Commonwealth countries at Glasgow’s Tramway.
As well as performances by up to 400 young people from across the Commonwealth, the festival will feature choreographic workshops and classes led by internationally-renowned dance artists and companies.
Groups can enter a maximum of 15 dancers aged 12 to 21 years (or up to 24 years old for companies with disabled dancers). To enter, send a DVD or YouTube link of a recent performance. Pieces should be no more than 7 minutes in length.
